Hello everyone

So good to be on this site!

I have recently been put on estradot (hrt) and the oestrogen has given me insomnia and making me feel hyper - has anyone else got any experience of this?

Thanks,

Jo

Hey Jo,

Welcome to NAPS.

What dose are you on and when do you change the patch (morning or night)? How long have you been on it? It should settle after a while but when you change your patch may be making things worse maybe?

Thanks so much for replying. I am on 100 micrograms a day so I change the patch once every 4 days - on a Tuesday and Friday morning. I am starting the progesterone pessaries today and hope I am not intolerant. Think I am at the beginning of a long road to sorting this out. I am 44 now and the pms is intolerable for me and everyone around me....

I am so happy you have had success x

I have been on it for a week. I just feel a bit out of control. With pms I know when it comes and what to expect and would organise my life around the off weeks - with this it's all new and I feel a bit scared...

It can take a good few weeks for the patches to get into your system and settle down so it may be that it will given time. Failing that, maybe the dose is a wee bit too high, but obviously if you have concerns about this, you'll need to speak to your doctor. Hope you get on ok with the pessaries. Jx
